May seem like a stupid question... but it's not answered in the press release...

So? Is the body made out of Carbon Fiber too? Or is it just a facade? Like Veneer on wood.

It doesn't actually say.

Nice! I wished thought the foregrip also had the CF effect on it as well....

keeping my fingers crossed that it is true CF....

It's so damn hard to see. They should have used different lighting and a different background so we can actually see the "carbon fiber". Because of that it's hard to see if it's a CF wrap... or a CF pattern dip.

I have a feeling if it is really CF, that there is still an aluminum sleeve in there. You can see it from the front angle shot. If anything I'm leaning towards just a hydrographic pattern dip.

It looks awesome, I normally hate chrome on a marker.

But on the CF body, I'd have to guess no on it being a full carbon fiber body for that price. If I'm not mistaken I believe the normal axe with redline is around in this price range, I would think if it was a CF body that would have driven the price up considerably.

I could be wrong, one can only dream though, I would love to see a full CF bodied marker that is just alumnimum or SS sleeved.

to me it looks like you can see a aluminum tube right were the barrel screws in; and i would assume they would have put an aluminum tube wrap in fiber. For the extra $400 i would have assumed they would have at least made the trigger frame as well as the fore grip carbon fiber as well. i got really excited when i seen the posting, yet unexcited when i seen the gun.

Then if that is the case they should have done the same with the foregrip and maybe even the grip panel......sigh.....

Only place in the press description that it mentioned being carbon fiber is the barrel. If the body was CF, I am pretty sure they would have highlighted that big time.

But it is still a sweet looking gun.
